    Starry Eyes 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Mar, 2015

    What a wonderfully refreshing horror film this was, something that's pretty hard to find in this day and age of modern horror. As subtly creepy as the first hour was, the last 30 minutes is sheer madness. Alexandra Esso was simply amazing, she became the role...I can't think of being this impressed with a lead female role in a horror film since probably Angela Bettis in May. And what an excellent soundtrack too. This ranks up with Lovely Molly, Absentia…

    The ABCs of Death 2013

    ★★½ Watched 14 Mar, 2015

    My love for anthologies finally got the better of me and I watched THE ABCS OF DEATH. I should have listened to all of you.

Much more of a tongue-in-cheek comedy than horror or fantasy, I laughed out loud at some of the stuff in this film more than I have most straight-up comedies that I've seen lately. How can you not appreciate a film, made in Norway, where a guy just happens to have a bucket of…

  • Cyborg

    Cyborg 1989

    ★★★½ Rewatched 09 Jan, 2013 3

    I have a total soft-spot for this one. I grew up loving it, and not having seen it in a good decade or more, I was worried that my nostalgia would be ruined, but it really wasn't. This is one of those films that feels like watching a live-action sci-fi anime from the late 80s/early 90s. Everything from the costumes, storyline, bizarre characters (mostly named after guitar brands), and even the score, throws off a heavy anime-inspired vibe. Van Damme…
